Montmorillonite on humans and plants without corrosion, non-toxic, no stimulation, in the feed industry can be directly added as raw materials. Montmorillonite formulations have different dosage forms, including different specifications of the granules, powder, powder and so on. Li Kezong et al (2002) that, under normal circumstances, poultry feed commonly used 10 to 40 mesh granules, and livestock commonly used 60 ~ 170 mesh powder. In the production process in accordance with a certain proportion of directly added in the finished material.
(1) premixed carrier due to montmorillonite powder adsorption strong, dense and delicate, fluidity, easy to dust, and as a premix carrier than rice husk powder, trona is much better. Li Kezong et al. (2002) showed that there was no stratification in the process, and the mixing performance was good, and the dispersibility of various vitamins and trace elements was strong and uniform, and could be moisture-proof, mildew, , Increase the content of trace elements, raw materials, low cost, is the premix carrier of choice.
(2) Adhesive montmorillonite has a strong comprehensive utilization of mineral bonding, heat and moisture resistance, can replace the commonly used carboxy cellulose, powder and other additives used for the formation of feed, not only adhesive effect Good, and plasticity, the formation of neat granules, the surface is smooth, the appearance of good quality, cost much lower than the traditional adhesive, has been widely used as pellet feed and aquatic bait adhesive used.
(3) fresh agent montmorillonite alkaline, strong adsorption, with the characteristics of ion exchange. Liu Wei (1994) experiments show that PRT for feed fresh agent can prevent the feeding process due to excessive feed intake or indigestion caused by acidosis and feed containing toxins or feed storage generated by the mold The harm to livestock. The use of montmorillonite on the nature of the toxin detoxification, in the livestock production, encountered in the feed moldy or wet weather, in the preparation of livestock and poultry dietary montmorillonite will help inhibit and eliminate the toxic effects of mycotoxins The
(1994) pointed out that the use of PRT as a thin feed of fermented feed, montmorillonite can be active ingredients of standardization, such products (4) diluent for dry fermentation of the whole product made of thinner, Sales, the proportion of fermented dry matter can account for 75% to 95%, the rest by the diluent - montmorillonite to supplement. Montmorillonite water content is generally below 10%, and the surface area, bulk density, easy to separate, the fermentation of feed storage will not have adverse effects.
